The focus of my research was on the differences of metabolic properties of skeletal muscle fiber isoforms in obese versus normal mice. The experience of completing this project at Fredonia was very beneficial. All of the necessary tools and apparatuses were readily available for all of the students involved in this study. We were given keys to the laboratory to allow us to work on the project at our convenience and Dr. Medler was available to help throughout the day or via e-mail as needed. Dr. Medler was a great instructor who was very knowledgeable in all aspects of this particular study – he would work one- on-one with students to develop a clear understanding of hypotheses, purpose of techniques, and significance of data. Overall, my research experience at Fredonia was wonderful. It has given me preparation for graduate school and I would suggest it to any student who is considering participation.
